A 4 track bleep ep (15m 19s) — released May 3rd 2019 on -OUS

A tale from the posthuman age. Simon Grab's "Extinciton" is the opening act of his long-term project "Pulse", in which he creates soundscapes and noises of an imagined posthuman environment.

His dark organic sonic creatures build up on a dense conglomeration of pulsating frequencies, produced with a reduced "no-input-mixing" setup. The self-oscillating system unveals a vast richness of notorious feedbacks, bursts of noise and tender tones. The signals speak in their own voices as they incarnate the network of machines they originate from. As the status quo is defined as temporary and transient, Simon Grab captures the sound of his circuits in live recording sessions.

The Zurich-based sound artist, musician and composer Simon Grab has made it a habit to explore new grounds by negating assumed borders. His work is rooted in dub and noise, and infused with an everlasting punk attitude.

Recent works include "Hirnmusik 1 & 2", with which he hunted down earworms by cutting brainwaves on vinyl; and "MRI", an electrifying album built from body scanner recordings. His new work "PULSE" focusses on reduction, and the peculiarity of self-referential systems. Following the "Extinction" EP, -OUS will release Simon Grab's album "PULSE" in the fall.
